Anyone else notice that Apple has not once referred to Snow Leopard as 10.6?

    I think they are probably still deciding whether or not it is going to be a full 10.X release.

    I doubt they'd change the name if it was just a 10.5.x increase.

    Well, notice how it is not a completely new name?

    I think it's pretty likely to be the 10.6.0 release.

    Given that the release date is middle of next year, 10.6 is probably it.

    I am not saying it won't be 10.6. It very well could be. I am just theorizing that perhaps Apple hasn't yet decided whether or not it will be 10.6. What other explanation do you guys have for them not ONCE calling it 10.6, either in the keynote or anywhere on their web site?

    According to the screen shots from the WWDC preview release, the about box clearly shows 10.6

    I wonder how many people are going to pay for no new "features".

    Are those orchardspy photos legit? They look convincing enough. If so, it looks like nearly *every* single application is getting an update, and most of them major. (iChat, Mail, Address Book, etc.) And even some smaller apps are getting point releases, like Exposé, Chess, and Calculator.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens when Apple shifts their entire focus from features to efficiency and performance. ;)
